Fascinated by the topography and history of Lantau, Huang did quite a number of paintings of the island’s scenic spots like the Lantau Peak, Tai Fung Au, Mui Wo and Tai O. The Lantau Peak, the highest point on the Island, is an ideal spot for admiring the spectacle of a sunrise. The journey and the climb, however, took more than a one-day trip to do, given the inaccessibility in the old days. This was finally made possible in 1952 when the Yung Sheh, a local hikers’ club, sought the consent of the abbot of the Po Lin Monastery to take in hikers for the night so that they could set off for the peak in the small hours. Huang joined his fellow members of the club on several occasions and found the climb so memorable that he visualized his impressions in many paintings, Lantau Peak being one of the more celebrated. In the painting entitled Climbing the Lantau Peak at Night, which was created from the sketch Lantau Peak, the mountain appears to be all the more monumental when seen from a low vantage point, with the main peak jutting out. A pagoda in the foreground gives added interest. The striking layout is reminiscent of the awe-inspiring landscapes in the Northern Song paintings.
